Genetic counseling and testing


The Social Work staff along with the surgeons and oncologists provides testing for breast, ovarian and colon cancer and cancer risk in genetic mutations .

After a discussion with your family or physician about your family history with cancer, combined with your personal history, the team at the Cancer Center and the Breast Health Center will work with you to discuss your level of risk and arrange for the testing right at the Center.

Our team is here to support you and work with you through the psychosocial aspects of genetic testing as well as through a thorough risk assessment and plan of appropriate medical surveillance.

For more information please contact the Hallmark Health Cancer Center at (781) 224-5810 or the Breast Health Center at (781) 224-5806, or Kathi Whittier, MSW at (781) 224-5872.
